“And writing involves dancing at my club? I saw Josephine there with a very handsome man with lots of tats. They weren’t just dancing. I know my club gets crowded, but you don’t need to be that close.”

Characters

The suspects are:

Marisa

I’m a chemistry and biology teacher. I’ve set up a lab at home. I’m hoping my side business will bring in some extra income. I’m trying to develop a brain-enhancing herbal supplement. I’ve been experimenting on myself.

Decima

I run a really cool bar on the west side of town. It looks like a pinball parlor but when you release the balls on the old-fashioned pinball machine, you find that a secret door opens to an invite-only nightclub. I’ve called it “Slapsies”.

Monji

I’m an African heiress. I’m a bit like a famous celebrity you all know except my parents owned a diamond mine rather than a chain of hotels. I’m dealing with various parties to get back my own money. It’s complex and involves various currencies and foreign banks. I thought I could trust these girlfriends, but now I am not so sure.

Vitoria

I’m not sure who I am. I’m suffering from amnesia. Odd things keep coming back to me… snippets of foreign languages, martial arts moves, memories of intense romantic encounters and so on. I’m trying to piece together the details.

Cora

I’m a personal trainer at a gym near here. That’s how I met most of these fantastic ladies. We train hard but we have fun. And we also party together, when our men let us.

Bernadette

I’m the projectionist and also the ticket seller during the daytime when I am often the only one here. To be honest, I just put the movie on and then I left. I don’t like romantic comedies anyway because the plots are always so weak and they’re usually tear jerkers too. This movie’s been on for a while, so there were just the seven women watching it.

Georgia

Although, I am creative, I’m not a painter like “O’Keeffe”. I’m a renovation expert and an interior designer. I specialize in warehouse loft renovations.

Mei

(pronounced “May”) I create wearable robot technologies for a living. Sometimes I try out the suits on myself, but I never wear them in public, because I don’t like being stared at. I’m Asian-American.
